    Brian:

    Thanks for your comments. What you're seeing isn't a surprise. About half the book derives from my MA thesis and the other half is composed of other stories and essays. My MA thesis just...

    Byron...

    Well... very heavily modified. For that story he's sorta combined with a couple other shop guys who have come and gone over the years. That's why they call it "creative" nonfiction.

    Tying the tail over the top of the abdomen is genius. Going to start doing that. I strongly suspect one tied with transparent orange flashabou and brown thread (which would darken the Flashabou...

    John:

    The shop's commercial auto insurance won't cover those under 18, period, and won't cover those under 21 if clients are in the car. Since staff will be expected to drive shuttles and maybe...

    Marco:

    Gotcha. From the tone of your original post, it sounded like you might have been disparaging the job posting and/or my shop specifically, not the fly fishing industry in general....

    Marco:

    I started off with this job and I went on to get two Master's degrees (and I use both). Jordan, the shop guy for the past two seasons, finished his B.S. in May. Richard Parks has enough...

    Mid-July usually offers the best fishing of the year in the Lamar system. The only exceptions are when the water is extremely high. So far, we are looking at a near-normal snowpack. Green Drakes,...

    Make sure to pause on your backcast. The most common cause of windknots for my clients when they're fishing two flies (which is to say almost always) is not coming to a complete stop at the top of...

    I use super glue a whole lot more, as my vids attest. A lot of my bugs have a coating of glue in unusual places. I routinely wrap hackle into wet glue, for example.

    If you are hoping to fish stonefly nymphs or streamers (aka for run-up fish), you are seriously undergunned. A 9-10' 6-7 is much better.

    In my opinion, the two most common mistakes people make...

    Even though I'm a commercial tier, I need to note that this is simply incorrect, at least for the major companies producing flies primarily in southeast Asia rather than Africa or China. Fly tying is...

    Where does Charlie get his money??? Every time I was ever in there, I was the only customer, and high-end graphite rod building can't be that lucrative.

    Inline or to the eye of the first fly works out to fishing about the same way. Use this method if you want to fish the flies at the same level in the water column. Tie your larger/heavier fly on...

    Under a foot of viz in Gardiner and forecast to stay above 10,000cfs for several more days, which most clients can't handle accuracy-wise. From a guiding perspective, this hatch is going to be a bust

    I thought I dreamed a shake, but it turns out it wasn't a dream. No damage. "The Big One" has to wait for another day (and will certainly happen).

    I'd actually be worried about that knot catching in the guides on the way out. I'd cut it off and go with a needle knot, same as I'd use on a line without a rear loop.
